The Road To The Crimson Throne

Aldlara's Book of Sacred Stings, Volume II

Aldlara keeps a small, black leather book in which she maintains a list of those who have incited her wrath, and are deserving of retribution:

Jalumm: In addition to his insolence as we tried to apprehend Lamm and his compatriots, the boor had the audacity to try and force his way into my bed. Better men than he have paid a small fortune for that privilege, and he sought to simply declare himself as being deserving? Sure, he claimed to be only interested in sleeping, but we know how men are… and that’s without even taking into consideration the fiendish blood that surely runs hot in his veins.

I showed him, however… When it became clear that he would get no restful night in the same bed as mine, he relented, and slunk back to some other corner of Zallara’s house. Still, I sense that the ledger is not yet balanced, and that the sorcerer is yet to get what is due him.

Hooky: One of Lamm’s lackies. That, in and of itself, is deserving of the Wasp Queen’s harshest justice, but the gnome did not even have the decency to wait patiently for me to attend to him while we fought his other minions, nor to keep his young brats under some sort of control. He’ll regret running off before I was ready for him.

Yargin: Gideon found this degenerate as he was violating a young girl, Leslie. Callistria surely knows no greater affront than to take her greatest gift, and defile it through force and coercion. No place in Korvosa is safe for this man. He’ll beg me for permission to die.

Edge of Anarchy: The Old Fishery

The Parade ending, Each of the group…The Addict turned Priestess Aldlara, The Aspiring Hellknight Kizziar, The Demonic Sorcerer Jalumm. and The Down on his luck Guardsman Gideon, each received a Harrow Card with a message to meet another who had reason to hate Gaedran Lamm at 3 Lancet Street in The West Dock Ward of Midland after dark.

With the sun setting the individuals made their way There to find it was the residence/shop of a very well to do Fortune Teller, Zellara. At First she was absent leaving behind a welcoming well lit home with wine and bread set out. As the party gathered a few moments of getting to know each other occurred before Zellara came downstairs to tell of a tale where her Harrow Deck had been stolen by Gaedran Lamm’s goons and her son had retrieved it earning Lamms Wrath. A few days later Her son had been upducted and when she sought information of his whereabouts from the Korvosan Guard, Lamm had sent her fingers in a box. She had gone to Lamm and begged to no avail and turned to magical means to find people to aid in her struggle….

Enter the party.

Hearing the information and after a short period of question and answer the group set out to where she said Lamm was hiding out currently, an Old Fishery in West Dock. Gathering gear and performing a recon they stood before a ramshackle building with some boarded up windows and doors and a scuttled ship tied to docks behind the Fishery.

They entered through the front door and what began in stealth quickly soured as The Mastiff, Bloo alerted to the parties entrance and Kizziar threw caution to the wind by firing his ‘Boom Stick’ in the confines of The Fishery. As the first of Lamms Lt’s, Giggles The Half-Orc Enforcer, made his presence known by slamming his flail into the priestess head, who fell beneath his blow. Kizziar saved her life by sacrificing one of his healing draughts to revive her. Giggles and Bloo were both down quickly. Jalumm The Sorcerer ran into the heart of the Fishery to discover his long lost daughter was one of Lamm’s Lambs, a Pick Pocket. The Second Lt, Hookshanks Grueller aka Hooky, The manager and trainer of The Lambs, was present and tried to turn the Lambs against the party. Jalumm used Magic to injure Hooky and dazzle some of the Lambs into unconsciousness with a blinding flash of brilliant light. During the confusion of the moment, The brainwashed daughter fled into the night. Aldlara charmed Hooky into calling off the Lambs and he lead the remaining children upstairs to await there fate….unbeknownst to the group…Hooky went and freed Yargin Hooky, and The remaining Lambs all fled the scene.

Meanwhile, The Guardsman Gideon, rescued a young woman who had been abducted to be Yargin’s plaything. Yargin was the 3rd Lt, The Chemist who made shivers for Lamm. Yargin was captured and the young woman rescued.

Finding a loading basket that could be used to descend to the dock below and then into Lamms residence, They found the waters of the Jeggare River had sharks….Fierce Jigsaw Sharks. One seemed to be haunting the shallow waters near The Fishery.

One by one they descended, and when thugs in Lamm’s employ discovered the group they had to move before Kizziar had descended. The Thugs fell quickly to spell and blade and Gideon ran to go after Lamm leaving Aldlara to face Lamm’s Pet, Gobblegut..The Alligator who promptly snapped her spear. Fortunately Lamm was hard-pressed by The Guardsman and called his Gator back to help him.

Kizziar slipped while descending and fellinto the basket and the weakened rops snapped on one side, dangling him into the water where the shark swam by sampling his flavor…

Kizziar’s Musket fell into the shallow water and sank to the bottom.

The party finally dispatched Lamm as Kizziar gained footing on the floating dock as the light rain became a heavy rain and a flash of lightning happened in the distance.

Aldlara's List of Savored Stings, Volume One

In a small, black leather book, Aldlara keeps a ledger of slights against her, ensuring that no one who crosses her goes unpunished.

To Feel the Sting:

Gaedran Lamm: Tried to use me as a common informant, and then tried to kill me with his poisoned shiver when I refused to acquiesce. He’ll rue the day he crossed me. Gaedran Lamm sleeps with the sharks. It’s a shame I never got to shove his own product down his cowardly throat.

Kizziar Makoa: Within minutes of meeting this buffoon, he had the audacity to swipe my bottle of wine. Someone needs to teach him some table manners. I think I’ve shown him the error of his ways: I publicly spilled wine in his lap this evening. It serves him right: if he wanted it that badly, he surely wouldn’t mind wearing it.

Jalumm: This aberrant crossbreed needs to learn his place. I had ensnared a minion with Calistria’s power, and this fool threatened to ruin everything by trying to kill my thrall, in spite of my direct instructions to the contrary. I cannot let such insolence go unpunished.

Gideon Vosk: I’m not sure this one warrants one of the Wasp Queen’s comeuppance’s just yet, though he did seem to ignore me when we met at the fortune teller’s place. And with me in my most low cut dress! Perhaps he prefers the company of other men?

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
